TEC 5708 - Building Science (3)


When Offered: On Demand
This course introduces students to the complex ways in which buildings interact with their environment. Particular issues include how moisture problems occur, how to protect building occupants from poor health due to indoor air quality, how to prevent building durability problems, and how to provide more energy efficient and comfortable building for clients. The course shows students how to use diagnostic equipment, such as blower doors, duct leakage testing devices, indoor air quality measurement devices, and air flow detection equipment. Students will be required to conduct a field-based project that includes building science diagnostic testing, analysis of technical data, and preparation of comprehensive written reports.
Prerequisites: TEC 2708 (Construction Technology and Building Codes), MAT 1020 (College Algebra with Applications) or higher, or permission of the instructor.
